National Electrical Safety Code (NESC)
Part 1 - NESC Compliance & Liability
Held on Thursday, February 7, 2019 10:00 - 11:30 AM Central Time
IF YOU ARE ALREADY A PAID REGISTRANT
The Association for Utility Line Design Professionals (UtilityLDPros) is offering this webinar to help utility line design professionals better understand and apply the requirements of the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC).
The 2017 edition of the NESC is the national standard for safety in the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of overhead and underground electric supply and communication lines. NESC rules are established on the fundamental principles used for the safety of utility facilities and the NESC is globally recognized as good engineering practice.
The NESC is adopted into law for regulated utilities by each of the states and becomes effective for most of those utilities on March 1, 2017. Utilities and authorized contractors performing design, construction, operation, or maintenance tasks are responsible for meeting the applicable requirements of the NESC. Even if compliance with the NESC is not legally enforced, employees of utilities and their contractors have a moral responsibility to design, construct, operate and maintain electric and communication systems in a safe manner. When incidents involving utility systems cause death, injury, and property damage, litigation is often based on claims of non-compliance with the NESC.
